Rain in Zanzibar

The 'long rains' finally caught up with us on our last day in Zanzibar. The skies opened in a torrent lasting more than a couple of hours, resulting in seven very wet photographers, one totally stuffed passport and two brand new Obama umbrellas (a bargain at $6 each). What was interesting was the discovery that there exist no real drains in Stone town so the water simply flows down the streets to get away - locals were literally wading upstream with the water coming half-way up their legs. It created lovely, soft light but the volume of water made it all but impossible to shoot. Apparently it gets a lot worse...
